Catfish Museum and Welcome Center, Belzoni – Mississippi Mondays June 17, 2019

Updated: as I found it on Roadside America (link added) and added a few other links I found for sites I wasn’t familiar with.

I found this week’s Mississippi Mondays – Catfish Museum and Welcome Center, Belzoni post on Onlyinyourstatehttps://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mississippi/eccentric-ms-museums/. This museum is not to be confused with the Catfish Row Museum https://catfishrowmuseum.org/ that is slated to open in Vicksburg by 2021. Took a bit longer than I anticipated to research.

Official website: http://www.belzonims.com/thecatfishcapitol.htm

They have an Annual Catfish Festival, started 1976; this year it was April 6, 2019; first Saturday in April.

Roadside America: No listing located when I searched Roadside America, but found one using my least favorite search engine https://www.roadsideamerica.com/Okay this was a shock to me as I thought there would be a listing. There is one listing for Belzoni on Roadside America, but it is for a tree “stump.” Update, link found through a search engine: https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/21864
